Wildflower Birthday

I was in the mood for a bit of watercolouring and I was itching to use my new sets from Whipper Snapper Designs. I stamped the flower, leaf, and butterfly with Stazon onto watercolour paper. Then I went to work with watercolour paints and a blender pen. I really wanted a soft glow around the images, so I dribble a few droplets of water on my plastic palette and mixed in a touch of yellow paint. I applied that with an aquapainter since I wanted it to disperse. Next I stamped Aida Cloth onto some caramel cardstock, I added piercing and some sponging to match with the rest of the edge distressing I had done. I completed it with a twine tied button and sentiment flag.

Stamps: Blossoms and Butterflies, Aida Cloth, Blooming Expressions
Ink: Timber Brown, Creamy Caramel
Paper: Creamy Caramel, Watercolour, New Leaf, Vintage Cream
Accessories, etc.: Twine, New Leaf button, paper piercer and guide, sponge, watercolour paints
